This means that England - 2 years after the people voted for it - will leave the European Union:

"Boris Johnson is on course to secure a huge Tory majority in the Commons, according to the exit poll.

The joint Sky/BBC/ITV poll gives the Tories 368 seats with Labour on 191, the SNP on 55 and LibDems 13. The Tory majority is projected to be 86.

Labour has lost its birthright to the working class vote."
-----------------------------

Perhaps liberals in England will learn the lesson American liberals did not - when you lose the first time around, it rarely helps to re-try an election on the same issue.

I follow British politics a lot.

This is an historic defeat. The labour party has not been shellacked like this since the 1930s.  Them losing the North, is like the Democrats losing the union vote, who are the Democrats lost Michigan in 2016.

It's seismic.

UK "conservatives" range from moderate to squishy. so they're not exactly the reincarnation of Winston Churchill.

But yeah, it's gotta be better the libs running the show.

And it's yet another example of how completely corrupt polls are when liberals run them.  Every UK poll had the race either tight, or the liberals winning.

This crushing, overwhelming result for conservatives is the clearest indication of just how bad modern polling has become.

Well, shit, these days anything to the right of Mao is considered 'far-right'.

Cthulu only swims left.

The right will eventually be democratic socialists and TERFs.

The left will all be outright intersectionalist communists.

The model where you accept that morality is indeed subjective and it's essentially a competition between three differently oriented morality systems seems to make the most sense to me at this point.

The focus of each of the competing three moralities is Liberty, Equality, and Order. Differing religious, ideological, and ethnic identities or loyalties can also compete over dominance in regards to the same essential moral principle as well, and there you have it. When things appear to have gone too far in one direction, I now tend to pull in the opposite direction so we can get closer to where I perceive balance is, but that is also a subjective call.

Without some degree of balance between the three, the center will not hold, and good luck with that.

History can be put on pause, but it never really ends, at least until civilization truly ends, not just another Dark Age.

At a point, there are no arguments that will be listened to by those who perceive they are winning, contradicting them, even with reasoned facts, is considered heresy, and people isa gonna die.

I completely agree with that chart.
